Oh well it's Sunday evening once again.
That was a quick weekend!!
Laura and Kevin came for a visit on Saturday afternoon and stayed for their dinner.
It was lovely to catch up with them and they seem very happy and content with their lives at the moment which is really nice.
I was quite sad to see them go back home again though!
Poor Karen is absolutely loaded with a cold and is feeling a tad miserable. Hopefully she will be feeling a bit better tomorrow.
I got up really earlythis morning (5.30am, ouch) to take her to work - she starts at 6am. The benefit of getting up so early is that you get quite a lot done and out of the way. I even managed to get my ironing all done by 9am - I was quite impressed with myself let me tell you :))
Anyway for dinner tonight I decided to make something different for dessert. I had my apples from my own little apple tree so I decided to make Eve's Pudding (I was going to make that joke about it
being my pudding and not Eve's - ooops I did it anyway, sorry lol)
The ingredients needed are:
200g/7oz unsalted butter
6 apples, peeled, cored and finely chopped.
100g/4oz soft brown sugar
4 large eggs
200g/7oz self raising flour
1. Heat oven to180C/160C/gas4.
2. Grease a large serving dish with a little of the butter, then tip in the apples.
3. In a separate dish, beat the remaining butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, then carefully fold in the flour with a large spoon.
4. Spread the batter over the apples, then bake for 45 minutes until golden brown.
You could serve this with custard but we didn't have any so I used whipping cream instead.
Let me tell you it was very tasty - Danny loved it :))
But I have to warn you between all of the sugar, butter and cream it was quite high in calories. But if you only have it every so often it can't really be a bad thing - can it ?!?
